Street Food Pilot for Toronto

Council approved a Toronto Street Food Pilot for the summer of 2008 to introduce the sale of safe, healthy, nutritious and ethnically-diverse foods at selected locations. Staff were instructed to seek expressions of interest from potential cart manufacturers and to explore the use of partnership opportunities to provide funding for the 15-cart pilot. The pilot is dependent on making an arrangement at no cost to the City. A staff report is expected in the spring. Council also approved a motion authorizing staff to take the necessary steps to secure the name "Toronto a la Carte" as the official name of the proposed street food program.
